He is our captain.
It is easy to see why. He is not a star player but he is a leader. He might not be a goal scorer but he does everything else.
The question is, what is that worth?
Like SLY said in another thread, the Sedins signed 4/28 extensions in November. Can we really give Cally 35 for 5 or 6 years? Granted the Sedins signed for a discount, but on the same merit will Callahan give us a discount?
Another good question -- the salary cap is going up-up-up... is it going to hurt? if we sign Callahan to a deal like that now it might not look as bad in year 3/4.
Also- who else is going to give him a contract like that? Callahan is our captain and it could be worth bidding against ourselves, but should we?
Just thought our captain should have a thread. DISCUSS!
